Rugby union: Shotton remain untouchable at the top

SHOTTON Steel continued their utter domination of Swalec League Division Three North with a devastating 121-0 at Bangor’s Cae Milltir ground.

The visitors, who have now scored 409 points without a single reply in their opening four fixtures, took total control of the match and ran in 18 tries against breathless Bangor.

Man-of-the-match Dan Lynskey, playing as number 8, notched up four tries.

And he wasn’t the only one as winger John Ketland also clocked up an awesome foursome of tries.

The scoring bug proved infectious as Richard Grace and Pete Ketland both grabbed two tries apiece, while Martin Harvey, Nick Wood, Adam Lynskey, Mark Higgins, Karl Rusowicz and Alex Thomas all touched down to complete the rout.

Stand-off Steve Ellson got plenty of opportunities to add to the score with his boot.

He eventually provided 31 points from conversions and drop goals.

The mammoth result leaves Shotton Steel with a two-point gap at the top of the table, modest value for their incredible form since the season kicked-off.

FLINT sit eighth in the table after their scheduled league game on Saturday was moved.

They still played however, travelling to Chester Road for a friendly against Mold Veterans instead.
